Indianapolis radio host Tony Katz (WIBC) took a piece out of those comparing the Trump administration’s handling of the situation at the U.S. southern border to the Holocaust and other humanitarian crises.

During a Wednesday morning broadcast, Katz told listeners that he had been “Holocaust-splained” on the subject, and he had had enough.

TONY KATZ: When They Compare The US Border To Concentration Camps, Shut Them Down

No one should be comparing the US border to concentration camps, says Tony Katz "Those doing so are using the Holocaust as a prop to move their agenda. It's sick, it's disgusting and it has to be pushed back against immediately and directly."Watch. Share Everywhere. Comment.

Katz, who is Jewish himself, took offense at the use of the Holocaust comparison to promote a political agenda.

He said, “I’ve got a Twitter feed full of people — of pseudo-intellectuals — who actually think they’re making a point. You’re not making a point. You’re twisted. You’re using the Holocaust as a prop. This is what you’re doing. This is how little the history means to you. This is how little the murder of 13 million people means to you. You’re willing to use it as a prop to move forward your agenda.”

Referencing comments made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Katz claimed that the argument should not even be entertained when that comparison was made.

Katz then laid out a challenge to the Senate following claims made by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).

“The fact that there isn’t a senator to take to the floor of the U.S. Senate and say, ‘Richard Blumenthal, the Senator from Connecticut, compared the U.S. border to concentration camps — to the Holocaust — and to him I say, ‘Go to hell.’ Nobody? Not one senator with the ability to let them drop and make that statement? Unbelievable. Unbelievable.”
Katz concluded by saying that those who wanted to have a rational conversation should do so without resorting to ridiculous comparisons. “Don’t like the policy? That’s fine. Compare it to the Holocaust? You are out of your skull.”
